Musical snake oil. I’m a recording engineer and even I don’t buy into this shit. There’s so much more to making a nice sounding recording than sampling rates.

For sure. The whole 70s/80s soft rock/Laurel Canyon thing is finally cool. I dunno, I don’t mind it. At least it’s brought things around to good, tasteful production again (Daft Punk being a prime example of this).

Yeah, good (if way overplayed) song. My only gripe is that it takes FOREVER to get to the first chorus.

Thanks Obama.

Goo Goo Dolls are one of the biggest bunch of musical opportunist hacks out there. “Oh ripping off The Replacements didn’t work, so I guess we’ll go acoustic…that’s popular now right?” But what do I know–they’re swimming in money McDuck style, and I have to go to work in 45 minutes.

I never noticed it until now but yeah, the vocal melody is pretty much note for note the same as “I Won’t Back Down.” I think it’s not immediately obvious because the chords under the melody are different. But when it comes to songwriting rights, all that matters is vocal melody and lyrics. (Chord sequences for example, like “Mary Jane’s Last Dance” and “Dani California,” are not copyrightable.)

So what you’re telling me is Katy Perry’s a cheapskate.

Yeah it’s like reverse Peter Hook. Honestly, I think S-K could use a bass player. This isn’t the early 00s anymore–come on!

Dark Side will always be #1 to me. I think it’s one of the rare cases of it being a band’s most popular album for good reason.

They both have a song called “Pardon Me.” Maybe that’s why?
